Nanaimo RCMP says the missing 37-year-old woman with “significant” medical issues has been found.

“She has been located safe and sound,” an RCMP spokesperson said Sunday afternoon.

The original story is below:

Mounties in Nanaimo are calling on the public for help as they try to locate a missing woman who they say has “significant” medical issues.

The 37-year-old left her home at around 9 p.m. Saturday and hasn’t been seen since, according to Nanaimo RCMP in a news release.

“Investigators were told by family members that (she) has significant medical issues, and as a result, they are extremely worried for her safety and well-being,” states the release from Sunday.

“Police have conducted extensive patrols but have been unable to locate her.”

RCMP say the woman, who doesn’t carry a cell phone or drive, is “overall cheerful but may appear as distressed.” She stands at 5’6″, weighs 200 lbs., has blonde hair, and was last seen wearing a purple T-shirt, black bike shorts and teal-coloured Crocs.

Anyone who sees her is asked to call 911, and those with information about her whereabouts should reach out to Nanaimo RCMP’s non-emergency line at 250-754-2345.
